GC02 Oxidative and Nitrosative stress in acute and chronic liver disease

Our research group is a consolidated multidisciplinary team composed of 6 basic researchers and 8 clinicians. The group is involved in the scientific education of its members, which is reflected in the 4 post-doctoral and 5 pre-doctoral researchers, who are developing their scientific career in the group. Besides, we have the valuable support of 3 dedicated nurses trained in research tasks. 

Our main research area is the molecular basis of liver and digestive diseases, with special dedication to patients with end-stage liver disease who develop hepatocellular carcinoma or undergo liver transplantation, and patients with inflammatory bowel diseases.

In the long term, we expect to apply the results of our research projects to develop a more personalized medicine, increasing the efficacy of the treatments and their safety. In particular, we are continuously working in improving immunosuppression regimens for liver transplant patients and in implementing liquid biopsy as a prognostic tool to select patients with hepatocellular carcinoma to undergo liver transplantation. In inflammatory bowel diseases, we expect to apply the identified biomarkers of response to anti-TNF to select the best treatment for each patient. The group aims to promote and to protect the health through the basic, clinical and translational research in liver and digestive diseases. In addition, our group is deeply engaged in providing access to the novel therapies to our patients, as part of our participation in 45 trials in hepatology and inflammatory bowel diseases in the last 10 years.

Regarding immunosuppression strategies, in the past few years we have shown that early minimization of tacrolimus in liver transplant patients with hepatocellular carcinoma is able to decrease tumor recurrence rates, while prolonging graft survival (Journal of Hepatology, 2013) and preserving renal function (Am J Transplant 2012 and Transplantation 2019). We have also demonstrated that everolimus, an mTOR inhibitor, may be safely introduced early after liver transplantation (Transplant Immunol, 2015) and may allow a safe minimization of tacrolimus, although without a significant effect against recurrence of hepatocellular carcinoma (Transplantation 2018). Early in 2017 we have worked with the Cochrane Collaboration to perform a network meta-analysis to make a ranking of the most effective and safest immunosuppression protocols (Cochrane Syst Rev Database, 2017). The results have reinforced the assumption that tacrolimus based immunosuppression is the gold standard after liver transplantation, even though its optimal combination with other immunosuppressants remains unknown. Further research initiatives are needed in order to accomplish a true personalized immunosuppression (Transplant International, 2016).

Research Lines

Hepatocellular carcinoma and liver transplantation: Patients with hepatocellular carcinoma confined into the liver are sometimes candidates for liver transplantation, resulting in a dramatic improvement of life expectancy. However, around 15% of patients will develop tumor recurrence after transplantation. In order to avoid this complication, we are evaluating the role of a novel diagnostic tool (liquid biopsy) to refine the selection of liver transplant candidates, while delineating personalized immunosuppression protocols (CNI minimization/mTOR inhibition) able to avoid graft rejection without hampering the anti-tumor capacity of the immune system.

Recently, the SNP rs6105269 has been identified as risk factor for Crohn’s Disease. Our group has analyzed the expression of the closest genes to polymorphism, MACROD2 and FLRT3, in order to clarify if they are affected by the SNP. Beside, we have analysed if the SNP is a prognosis marker of the disease.

We have 2 active projects, in Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, that aim to identify plasma biomarkers of response to anti-TNF using an advanced proteomic approach, named SWATH.

Our group is strongly committed to participate in the development of novel drugs for patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma. In this research line, we are continuously involved in randomized phase I/II clinical trials.

We have recently proposed the SR11302 synthetic retinoid as a promising therapeutic agent using a model of cholestasis in vitro. We are interested to assay this retinoid in a model of cholestasis in vivo.

We are using liquid biopsy to study the kinetic of CTCs release in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma undergoing loco-regional ablative therapies and to identify the subpopulation of circulating cancer stem cells (CSCs) after the application of ablative therapies as an early prognostic marker to know the biologic behavior of the tumor.


    Our group is a member of "Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red de Enfermedades Hepáticas y Digestivas (CIBERehd)", which is a national platform formed by outstanding research groups in the area. In addition, our group is member of "Grupo Español de Trabajo de Enfermedad de Crohn y Colitis Ulcerosa (GETECCU)", promoting our collaboration in numerous studies with the most important Inflammatory Bowel Disease Units of Spain. One of these projects is the national database and genetic samples biobank, named ENEIDA.

    In addition, the research team is part of the scientific groups CTS-273 in Study of acute affections of the digestive system, and BIO-216 on Molecular mechanisms of antioxidant and proteomic defense, both pertaining to the Andalusian Plan for Research, Development and Innovation (PAIDI).
